New Technologies for Urban Farming - ONLINE
This class will take place online. Registered students will receive login instructions.
As urban populations expand and access to arable land and potable water shrinks, agri-entrepreneurs are turning to innovative systems to grow food indoors without soil-aeroponics, aquaponics, and hydroponics. Three NYC-based experts-Kathleen DeBrota, Plant Scientist at AeroFarms; Maya Kutz, Greenhouse Manager at Brooklyn Grange; and Sarah Ann Horton, Farm Manager of Square Roots-will explain how their systems currently produce high-quality food and discuss what these new technologies mean for agriculture, climate, and culture today. Moderated by Charles Yurgalevitch, Ph.D., Director, School of Professional Horticulture.
